New educators exemplify diverse scholarship and professional experience

This fall, Messiah College welcomed several new faculty and cocurricular staff to the Community of Educators. As graduates of such universities as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Temple University, and the University of North Texas, these educators bring a plethora of knowledge and experience to their new roles in the College’s five academic schools and residence life program.

They have followed varied vocational paths—many bringing college teaching experience, others drawing from unique professional perspectives. Among the new faculty are the former director of the Pennsylvania Governor’s Schools of Excellence and an archaeologist who has worked on research projects in Greece and Cyprus.
